Hearts for Home

Today I am joining in with Gae from Cherished Hearts at Home . She has a weekly post called Hearts for Home which is open for others to link up with and share some thoughts on home-centred ways. She encourages us to think of 4-6 things to commit to each week to make homelife special and to bless us as keepers at home.

This week I need to:-

1.  Go through everything collected for college with my daughter and get it packed and ready to go - along with a master list so we don't forget to unpack anything once we're there!

2.  Get things ready to enter into the local fair this weekend.

3.  As always at this time of year, there are items that need to be brought in from the garden and processed.

4.  Make a salad and dessert in advance for Sunday's meal at church as I will be out all day Saturday.

5.  Make an appointment at the bank.

6.  Start on a menu plan for the week we will be away camping.

  1. Dear Alana,
    How wonderful to have you join in again.
    A most variable list for you. Getting everything ready for college is a challenge we went through for the firts time this year. I still miss our son so much too.
    A week away camping sounds so enjoyable and the meals can be dificult if not planned. Is it to the wilderness?
    Have a blessed week

  2. Gae - It is so good to be back :) No, we won't be wilderness camping. We have a trailer and will be staying at various parks as we travel to where our daughter will be attending school.


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each one so much and will try to get back to each one of you. Have an amazing day!
